Well, mate.

I'm glad I tried the FT-3's in this position, worked really well with the cap mix.

I hope it goes well for you too

Data, I'm glad to hear it! Probably it'll be a while, yet, before I get to it, but I'll let you know.

I was told these Russian teflon caps take a long time to break in, at least 200 hrs and so expect improvements, if they're new caps.

Enjoy!

These are used with about 300 hours on them, so good from the get-go

Well, there's still the solder joints, find they take some time, too. So, you noticed a significant improvement?

Yeah, It's a lot smoother with more transparency...slight increase in dynamics too, just sounds overall more natural

Granted, the Obligatto MPK's they are across are not exceptional, so the improvement is not a real surprise, but It's a little more than I expected.

Data, did the installation of the bypass caps and indeed, it makes a positive improvement in the sound, am not experiencing any phase shift, or bluring of the sound. In my case, the caps are new and so time should improve things, further. So far, so good!
